    Intercourse after Polyp Removal
    bubbles8383 posted:
    Yesterday I had a routine pap smear done, and my doctor found a cervical polyp. She removed some of it to test, and told me there was still a little there. I had some light bleeding/spotting yesterday till this morning. I forgot to ask her at the time, when it would be safe for my boyfriend & I to have sexual intercourse. I feel fine down there, no cramping or whatnot

    No guessing at this, be sure to call the docs office and ask. Even the nurse or medical person on staff should be able to help. You don't want to risk infection, so make sure you ask.
    Glad you are feeling fine!

    Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.

    I had one removed recently and I had really bad cramps for about a week after the removal and heavy bleeding for 3 weeks straight. I was wondering if you had any issues with sexual intercourse because I get a shooting pain down the left side of my cervix and stinging where the polyp was removed during orgasm. is this normal?
